R. Kelly was arrested by the NYPD on charges of sex trafficking in Chicago and is expected to return to the city, sources said.
The legendary R & B singer, 52, was arrested by New York police detectives and domestic security investigators, according to repressive sources.
Kelly's arrest comes after his arrest on several charges of sexual abuse earlier this year.
In May, the singer "Ignition" was charged with sexual assault in Illinois under 11 counts, with a minimum sentence of six years imprisonment.
In February, the star of the R & B group was charged with 10 counts of serious sexual assault involving four victims, including three minors.
Kelly pleaded not guilty in both cases and vigorously denied any wrongdoing.
